sample online health courses

Here is a sample list of online health courses offered by UMass Amherst in the past three years. This will give you an idea of the types of online courses you would have the opportunity to choose from. As with all colleges and universities, online courses come and go, and this list is subject to change.

Depending on how you craft your concentration in health studies, there may be online courses offered through other academic departments you’ll want to take. For example, if you want to study health administration, maybe you’ll add some online business courses. Want to build a concentration in mental health? Add online psychology courses. Interested in food systems? Check out our online sustainability courses. Or maybe you have past credits you can bring into the mix. The choice is yours.
